Campervan rental from Calais Dunkerque Airport

Sitting along the coast of the English Channel, Calais is the main gateway into France from Dover in England. It is here that travellers will find the ferry port and the Eurotunnel le Shuttle, but the city is also a great place to start a self-driving tour of the region.

Many often miss Calais, as it is seen predominately as a port town, but it has much to offer. It acts as a great stepping-stone between France and England, and makes a great base for a tour around both countries. A motorhome is the best way to do this, as it allows travellers comfort on the road.

Latest Customer Reviews

Great experience again , the camper which we got was a compact Globescout Fiat Ducati and was in excellent quality. The service provided by the Black Sheep staff in Lyon was good as well. My wife and I look forward to more trips to Europe. Next time we are thinking of booking a Volkswagen California style camper.
